Talia’s First Day of High School

Talia started high school today. She is going to the school just down the street from the school Jared, Riley, Aidan and Kayli go to. That makes it easy for me to drop her off on the way to taken the other kids to school. We had to do a transfer to get her into that school, since we live out of the boundaries for that school. Our home high school is in a totally different direction and it would have been very difficult to get her to school each morning. Plus, her best friends were all going to this school and she really wanted to go there instead of our home school.

When she picked up her schedule a few weeks ago, they had her down for Japanese and World Geography Honors. She did not want either of those class, having put down French and Theater as her electives. We talked to her counselor about it and she was very happy to see that her final schedule has French and Theater and not Japanese and World Geography Honors. She has a few friends in some of of her classes, but not many. I’m sure she will make new friends though. Her locker is by all of her best friends, so they are able to meet there at lunch. She already had homework today and did it without to much complaining.

Here’s some more of the pictures we took before she left for school this morning.
